.....WHO'S DUMBER!!! We have 3 contestants tonight, and none of them are Barack Obama!
Our first contestant is a group effort, courtesy AP through WOWO.com:
BASS LAKE, Ind. (AP) _ Northwestern Indiana police have rescued
five boaters who got lost on a tributary of the Kankakee River
after losing their boat's oars.
The Starke County Sheriff's Department rescued the boaters about
1 a.m. Monday from the Yellow River and took them back to their
vehicles in the northern part of the county.
Police got a call late Sunday night from a man who said he and
four friends had gotten their boat to shore after losing their oars
and getting lost on the river.
After their rescue, the boaters were issued citations for having
too many people in the boat and for not wearing life jackets.
How many idiots does it take to lose an oar? 5! Perhaps they would have been better off at least putting a life jacket on their paddles, eh?
Okay, contestant two is the weather girl at the aforementioned WOWO, who informed us tonight that we could expect possible HEFTY rain. Hefty rain?
Is this rain that needs to avoid falling on their local McDonalds?
Contestant #3 is a customer of ours who ordered (bear with me here) an L553G76B. Gobbledygook? Perhaps, but allow me to explain. The L553 tells me that the shell (cushion) will be made of THIS fabric.
The G76 is the pattern we make out of the fabric. Only in this case, we had no idea what it was. So I contacted our neighborhood engineering lackey, Jeff. He found out that it was the same as another pattern that we did have, only it was a special that required L553 for the cushion and L806 for the welt cord binding. THIS is L806.
As any other idiot can see, this is not necessarily a very good combination.
As a concerned worker for my company, I feel I should let our customer know that further information on their cushion may be found
So who's the winner? You pick .
